A small attempt to pen those precious moments that seem to go by all too quickly. Things that would easily be forgotten.....may they always be remembered....here's hoping this site never crashes. :)

Ballet

KG started dance this past week. She is taking ballet and tap. She wasn't quite sure about tap until she was fitted for the shoes, and the sound they made were magical to her. ha!! She has been so funny. She counted down the days until dance started, and is counting down again until she gets to go back. She LOVED it!! She told me, "Mom, that was AWESOME!!".
Reading a ballet book before getting started.

Deacon's 1st Day of Wee School!!

Tuesday was Deacon's first day of Wee School. He did great!! Went right in and took over the place. :) He even took a nap. Mommy got some much needed time to herself. :) Yeah for Wee School!
I'm ready Mommy.
Alright, let's go!

Since everyone was in school, Mommy redeemed herself from CT's birthday snack disaster. We were supposed to take cupcakes on his birthday, but KG brought home a lovely stomach bug the night before, and Mommy and Daddy both got it on CT's birthday. Daddy drug himself out of bed long enough to take in a cookie cake. CT was thrilled, so it wasn't a complete bummer. It was his turn to do snacks again, and we did snowman cupcakes. Yes there is one missing.....I had to make sure they tasted ok. Don't judge me. :)

Christmas- Part 2

For our second Christmas celebration we headed over to Mimi and Poppi's! We celebrated Christmas there during New Years Eve. I didn't know how I would like it, but I LOVED it!! It made Christmas last so much longer. Plus there were some really good sales the week after Christmas. :)


One night we headed out to a new pizza place in town. They had a buffet and then a game room. They were VERY proud of their pizza, but the kids had a great time in the game room.
Here's Deacon riding on someone else's dime. :) He actually rode this several times.
Deacon and KG on the firetruck.
CT riding the wave runner.
Uncle Chris and Uncle Chad hunting the easy way. ha!
Christmas stockings hung by the chimney with care. Stockings have always been a BIG deal in my family. This is one of my favorite parts. The kids got more excited about their little stocking stuffers than they did their big gifts.
Before the chaos began.
Uncle Chris kind of liked little Deacon. :)
CT excited about his new nerf gun. We shall see how smart a purchase this was. ha! Him being the first child and a rule follower he will probably wear the safety goggles, and play it correctly. It's the other two I'm worried about.
Mom, you've got these bows on a little too tight!
Uncle Chris trying to figure out CT's Bumblebee Transformer.
KG playing with her new make up kit.
Aunt Mandy helping out Deacon with his hammer and bench.

I wanna help. Actually, I just want the candy. :)

Mom surprised us with new Coach purses!! So fun!
Merry Christmas Y'all!!

Between Celebrations

Between our Christmas Celebrations we had a few days at home. So on Monday KG and CT both had a friend over, which helps tremendously!! They play with each other and there is little fighting. We had a great day!

KG and her good friend Liv "helping" to make snow ice cream. YUM!!
The finished product. It was pretty good! Just snow, milk, sugar, and vanilla. :)
KG and Liv rockin' it out!
CT and his best buddy Stephen. These two crack me up. Stephen taught CT how to do the man hug when they see each other. I'll have to get it on film.
Who can go wrong with some cheerleaders, super heros, and a mean game of Disney bingo. :) Deacon was in on most of the fun, but was taking a nap during the ice cream and board games.
